Somebody keep an eye on Rick



From the NOAA site

THIS SPECIAL ADVISORY IS BEING ISSUED TO UPDATE THE CURRENT AND
FORECAST INTENSITY OF RICK...WHICH CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY AT A
REMARKABLE PACE. SUBJECTIVE AND OBJECTIVE DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES
BASED ON THE LATEST INFRARED IMAGERY ARE AT LEAST 6.0...AND THE
INITIAL INTENSITY IS RAISED TO 115 KT BASED ON THESE DATA. FURTHER
STRENGTHENING SEEMS LIKELY GIVEN THE IDEAL ENVIRONMENT...AND THE
INTENSITY FORECAST HAS BEEN ADJUSTED SHARPLY UPWARD. THE NEW
OFFICIAL FORECAST SHOWS A PEAK NEAR CATEGORY 5 STATUS IN 24 HOURS
FOLLOWED BY A GRADUAL WEAKENING.




Class Five storms are the top end of the classification.

Either Mexico is going to get hit and get a lot of rain or if the storm goes left into the Pacific Ocean SoCal might get some surf.
